K. M. Walton
Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. If you want it, make it happen.

Q. Who is your favorite fictional hero?

A. Harry Potter all the way. Hands down.

Q. What’s your best quality?

A. Making people feel comfortable.

Q. Which living person do you most admire?

A. My mother. She taught me by example: kindness, empathy, drive, determination.

Q. If you could meet any historical character, who would it be and what would you say to him or her?

A. I'd love to meet the female Egyptian pharaoh Hatshepsut. Women who rise to ultimate power in male dominated societies are, in my opinion, hardcore amounts of awesome.

I'd ask her what makes her laugh...cry...feel afraid? Basic human questions. Mostly I'd just watch and observe her in action (not like a creepy stalker or anything) to see how she operates as a woman.
